Mar 3, 2008 - I am in need of a carpet rake
After reading reviews of other carpet rakes that were cheap or had bristles that broke easily, I decided to spring for the “luxe” model to avoid disappointment. I live in a rental apartment, with all the cheap, matted-down, wall-to-wall carpeting that implies. In an effort to combat indoor allergies, getting a carpet rake to make my vacuuming more efficient at collecting dirt seemed like a better expense than buying a new vacuum cleaner to work old carpet.
It is about an inch long and and very very thick
Similar in appearance to a broom, or a large pet brush, these so-called rakes don’t really look like the tool you use in your backyard to collect leaves. They will all have long handles so you can use them standing up, but that is where the similarities end. The specialized heads on these tools are usually made from thin metal needles, or some sort of plastic. Many are not really made for pet hair, so pet owners will want to be careful which one they choose. Some are designed for revitalizing long pile carpeting more than lifting up fur, so it’s important to select the style more suited for cleaning. The Universal Rug Rake that Ilene is curious about is designed for hair, and it looks like an oversize cat brush on a long stick. The tiny “bristles” are positioned closely together, and they are moderately long. When used on a rug or carpet, the metal pins will dig down deep, lift up fur, and collect it right on the head.
